Renée Zellweger Gets In A Car Accident

Bradley Cooper comes to her aid

Uh oh!! Poor Renée Zellweger got herself into a little fender bender as she was trying to leave rumored boyfriend Bradley Cooper‘s place in Pacific Palisades, CA earlier today. When last we saw Bradlée, they were traveling together in Vancouver, BC last October but they have since tried to keep their creepin’ on the downlow. It would seem that Renée was, again, tryin’ to keep her creepover at Bradley‘s a secret … but unfortch this minor car accident brought all the paparazzi to the yard:

So is Renée Zellweger a bad driver or does she just have bad luck behind the wheel? The fender-bender-plagued star was in yet another bust-up earlier today, this time after she was trying to make her getaway from Bradley Cooper’s home in the Pacific Palisades. And like the crash in August, this one also wasn’t her fault. Dressed in workout gear, the actress was climbing into her black Prius when a passing SUV smashed into her open car door. As for the once (and future?) Bridget Jones… She’s just fine. The sideswiper just barely missed her. The older woman who managed the near miss pulled over and the two began swapping essential details. “They got out, [Renée] took pictures of the damage, they exchanged information,” an eyewitness tells E! News. “She didn’t seem upset. She was in good spirits with the person.” The source claims the police were not called to the scene. Following the incident, Cooper came to the rescue and the pair left the banged-up car parked on the street.

MMM HMMM. So Renée is wearing “workout gear” as she left Bradley Cooper‘s home in the early morning hours. Her car may have gotten banged on the street but I think we can guess what got banged the night before … oh yeah, you know they were knockin’ boots! I guess we can safely assume that Bradlée are an actual couple now. When a guy comes running after a woman gets into a car accident, you know it’s true love :)

Hit Me With Your Best WORST Shot

The TV Guide

Blah … yesterday was not the funnest day for me. David took it upon himself to schedule physicals with our new doctor and yesterday was my turn up to bat. I’m a relatively healthy person who has never, ever been seriously ill so it is very easy for me to NEVER go to the doctor ;) But, and David is right about this, it’s very good practice to check in with a medical professional to make sure that everything is OK:

My new doctor has this cute illustration hanging in the exam room which is a parody of Norman Rockwell‘s famous painting Before The Shot (which, funny enough, used to hang in the exam room of my pediatrician when I was a kid). After going thru all the poking, prodding and probing required of a male physical, I also had to give up about 6 vials of blood for testing and had to get a tetanus shot. Blah … ’twas not fun but is necessary.

I’m planning to do much more fun stuff today. My friend Josh Z and I are going the Under the Influence: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe exhibit at Gallery 1988 and then I’m planning to meet up with Kirsten and Darion for dinner. Today should be much more fun than yesterday but, as unfun as it was, I highly urge y’all to get medical check-ups if you can.


Michael C. Hall Reveals Cancer Illness

The 'Dexter' star has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma

Michael C. Hall, the amazing star of the hit Showtime series Dexter, has revealed that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which he calls “treatable and curable”, and has undergone treatment for his illness. This news is horribly upsetting and shocking to me and I’m sure to many other fans. Here are the deets of Hall‘s revelation:

“Dexter” star Michael C. Hall says he was diagnosed with cancer and is on the road to the successful completion of treatment. In a statement Wednesday, Hall said he was fortunate to be diagnosed with a “treatable and curable condition,” Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and thanked his doctors and nurses for their expertise. The name of the Los Angeles area health facility where he has undergone treatment was not released. Craig Bankey, a spokesman for the actor, said the disease is in complete remission and Hall’s treatment will continue as planned. The 38-year-old Hall plans to attend Sunday’s Golden Globe awards with his wife, actress Jennifer Carpenter, and the upcoming Screen Actors Guild ceremony. He’s a nominee at both awards shows for his role as a serial killer in Showtime’s “Dexter.” Bankey said Hall will return to production on the drama’s fifth season later this year.

While I am very happy to know that Hall‘s cancer is in remission, I cannot help but be concerned for his overall health. I have been a big Michael C. Hall fan for a long time and it pains me to think of him dealing with an illness like this. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his entire family. I can only imagine the hell that his wife and Dexter co-star Jennifer Carpenter must be going thru in all of this as well. Heal quickly, MCH. You’ve got a lot of folks rooting for your health!!

Lindsay Lohan Hits The Town, Her Driver Hits A Photographer

Typical Saturday night

Lindsay Lohan, lookin’ like she was taking fashion cues from Victoria Beckham who in turn is taking fashion cues from Carmen Sandiego, stepped out on the town here in LA last night making an appearance at the Hotel Cafe. While Lindsay was bizzy lookin’ fab in her all black ensemble, her personal driver was bizzy plowing into the paparazzi. One pap in particular was injured as a result and had to file a police report before being taken away in an ambulance:

Lindsay Lohan’s car struck a photog this morning, and her driver is now a person of interest in a criminal assault with a deadly weapon investigation. The incident occurred at 12:30 AM in front The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. Lindsay’s driver was behind the wheel of her BMW when it made contact with the paparazzo. The photog was not taken to the hospital Lindsay is not a suspect — though she was reportedly inside the car during the incident. Ironically, it was Lindsay’s assistant reported the incident. According to X17, the photog (wearing a Jack Daniels shirt) injured his hand and was treated by EMTs who arrived on scene.

OY! Drama follows Lindsay Lohan around like a jilted lover who just won’t quit. In her defense, she was not at all at fault for this incident and she was lookin’ fantastic in her outfit so … no harm/no foul on her at all. It’s unclear if the paparazzo who was allegedly injured by Lindsay‘s driver wet his pants before the incident or after but his soaked crotch seems proof positive that he was not having a good night, whether he was actually injured or not. Lindsay – 1, Paparazzo – 0

MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ Is A Ratings HIT

But MTV decides to pull the infamous "Snooki punch"

Earlier this week we got to meet the charming Mike The Situation Sorrentino and classy Paul Pauly D Delvecchio from the new HIT MTV show Jersey Shore and today we learn that said program managed to amp up its ratings in just one week’s time. Apparently all the buzz about the show has inspired a whole lot more people (50% more, to be exact) to tune in to watch the show:

The cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore may seem oblivious to the outside world as they party, pump their fists, and work out, but viewers are taking note of them: The show’s second week ratings were up 50 percent in its second week, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Jersey Shore nabbed 2.1 million viewers, a big boost from the 1.3 million viewers that tuned in for the show’s debut. The series follows eight twenty-somethings living together in a rented beach house in Seaside Heights, N.J. It has gotten widespread attention in part because of objections from Italian-Americans who say it portrays their culture in a negative light.

Much of the buzz that the show is enjoying stems from a preview aired by MTV of new eps of the show, one in particular shows female castmember Nicole Snooki Polizzi getting punched in the face by a large man. MTV has decided to pull that infamous punch from airing on the show but a clip of the incident has already gone viral and has spread far and wide on the Internets. After the jump, find out why MTV decided to pull the clip, find out who the douchebag puncher is and check out the clip that MTV no longer wants you to see … More »

Tiger Woods’s Mother-In-Law Confirmed Hospitalized

Official statement verifies 911 patient as Barbro Holmberg

Earlier today we learned that a “middle-aged blond woman” was rushed to the hospital from Tiger Woods‘s Florida home in the wee hours last night after an ambulance was dispatched to respond to a 911 call. It has since been confirmed that this woman is, in fact, Barbro Holmberg — mother of Tiger‘s wife Elin Nordegren:

The woman rushed to a hospital from Tiger Woods’s Florida home was his mother-in-law, Barbro Holmberg, hospital spokesman Dan Yates confirmed. An ambulance took Holmberg, 57, a well-known politician in Sweden, to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., early Tuesday morning. “Last evening Barbro Holmberg, mother of Elin Woods, was admitted to Health Central Hospital with stomach pain. She’s in stable condition and is currently undergoing evaluation,” Yates said Tuesday. “Media reports other than this attributed to this matter have been erroneous and speculative, and we ask that her privacy be respected at this time.” A family member also confirms that Holmberg is stable and is being evaluated. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department released a record of a 911 call from Woods’s house in Windermere at 2:35 a.m. Tuesday. Nordegren is one of Holmberg’s three children with her former husband, Swedish journalist Thomas Nordegren. Holmberg, a member of the Social Democratic party, served as minister of migration and asylum from 2003 to 2006.

HMMMM … a concerned mother flies overseas to attend to her daughter who is dealing with a very public cheating scandal that seems to grow exponentially by the second suddenly comes down with stomach pain and we’re to believe the two matters are not related? OK. It’s really something to know that just over a week ago Tiger Woods was seemingly living the perfect life, the perfect dream and now his “perfect life” is ground zero for an ugly scandal that shows no sign of quieting down. I imagine that Mama Holmberg is more than just sick to her stomach over this growing mess. I wonder what’s next.

Tiger Woods’s Wife Moves Out, A Woman Is Taken To The Hospital From His Home

The shizz hits the fan

Things have been relatively quiet in the Tiger Woods Cheating Scandal for the past few days … except for a bunch of new allegations of new mistresses coming to light (bringing, thus far, the count of “other women” Tiger is said to be cheating with to a grand total of 9) there had been no other news to report on the events and circumstances that erupted from his car accident just after Thanksgiving … until now. RadarOnline is reporting that Elin Nordegren, Tiger‘s wife, got fed up with all of these new mistresses coming to light and has packed up her bags and moved out of their home. I guess she drew the line when the mistress count got to 9. As if that wasn’t crazy enough, a new 911 call was placed from the Woods‘ home and a women was taken to the hospital overnight last night (presumably Nordegren‘s mother Barbro Holmberg, who just arrived in the country to lend her support to her daughter). Yes, folks, the shizz has hit the proverbial fan … and it’s gettin’ even messier. But first things first … here are the alleged deets of Elin‘s decision to move out:

Tiger Woods’ wife Elin has moved out of their house, is reporting exclusively. The explosive development follows numerous women coming forward with claims of affairs with the golfing great. Elin Nordegren had enough and moved out of the $2.6 million Windermere home,neighbors and other sources close to Tiger, told exclusively. Sources tell that Elin is living nearby in another house … Tiger and his reps are keeping Elin’s move top secret and hope she will come back to the house as soon as possible. They don’t want any publicity about what is going on in the marriage since Tiger’s cheating was revealed.

Yeah, considering all the new mistresses that have been coming to light on a seemingly daily basis, you kinda knew that wifey Elin would be moving out of the family abode sooner or later … but there is more drama in the Tiger Woods Saga to pass along … that crazy 911 call that came from his house late last night which resulted in a woman being taken to the hospital … I mean, whut?! After the jump, check out the deets of this latest development AND learn other information about the night Tiger crashed his car — he was reportedly admitted to the hospital on that fateful night as a drug OD patient!!!

Tiger Woods & His TWO Smashed Out Windows

A whole lotta damage

Earlier today we learned that Tiger Woods posted an official statement on his official website (the second in as many days) in regards to all the drama going on in his life these days but right now we get to see the official police photos of Tiger‘s smashed car … which may escalate the drama even further. You may recall that he got into a pretty serious fender bender in the wee hours of last Friday morning when he first smashed into a fire hydrant and then his neighbor’s tree. Those hits caused pretty severe damage to the front end of his car …

… but curiously, the back windows of BOTH sides of his car were also smashed in — as if they were bashed in by someone, for example, wielding a golf club. HMMMM:

Official police photos of Tiger Woods’ crashed car were released Wednesday afternoon and they show that rear windows were smashed on BOTH sides of the vehicle. The damage to the black Cadillac SUV is extensive and shows that the golfer’s one-car smashup at 2:31 a.m. November 27 was more dramatic than he has indicated. What is most interesting, though, is the fact that the rear side windows are smashed on both sides of the car. Tiger’s wife Elin is said to have smashed a window with a golf club to help pull him out of the vehicle after he crashed. But there is nothing in the police report that indicates either side of the car was blocked, raising the question of why did Elin smash windows on both sides?

Now, because the rumor is that Tiger and his wife Elin were arguing and she may or may not have scratched his face (police aren’t sure he injured his face in the accident as no blood was found on the steering wheel) it’s entirely possible that she chased him out of the house with one of his golf clubs and smashed in his windows as he drove away. The couple told the police that Elin used one of Tiger‘s golf clubs to get him out of the car after he crashed it … but does that mean she smashed the windows on both sides in order to get him out of the car? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. It is my personal belief that the couple got into an argument over those cheating allegations (of which new proof came to light earlier today) and she banged up his car before he crashed into the fire hydrant and tree. I doubt we’ll ever get confirmation that that is what happened … but all of this circumstantial evidence seems to be pointing in that direction … I mean, right?

Victoria Beckham’s Killer Shoes Are Destroying Her Feet


Anyone with even the vaguest notion of Victoria Beckham knows that she LOVES to wear sky high heeled shoes … but it turns out that her love of that killer footwear is, apparently, doing a lot of (what looks to be) painful damage to her feet. Hammer toes are so not sexy … and neither are swollen bunions … ew:

Her penchant for towering heels has become her trademark. But years of wearing six-inch stilettos have taken their painful toll on Victoria Beckham – she is facing surgery to remove her bunions. Style may be everything for Posh, but she is in such agony that friends have revealed she is being forced to put ice on her feet and do daily exercises in a desperate bid to avoid having the bunionectomy operations advised by her doctors. The star has said the pain is affecting her perfect posture. A friend has told the Mail: ‘The Beckham household is all about feet at the moment: David is having painkilling injections for bone bruising on his foot, while Victoria is in agony with her misshapen feet. ‘She is suffering from shooting pain from the bunions. Normally, she kicks off her shoes in the house, but she has been out so much recently in high heels that she is really feeling it.’ Mrs Beckham continues to insist she will not resort to flat shoes. ‘I beyond hate ballerina flats,’ she says. ‘I can’t walk in them. Unless they’re on a ballet dancer doing ballet, I just don’t get it. I love heels.’ To combat her agony, Mrs Beckham, 35, has been doing exercises, such as standing on a step and lowering her weight onto one leg, and lying on her back to stretch her legs. If Posh has the surgery, she could face at least two months out of high heels. ‘Victoria calls her feet “the bane of my life”, but she is worried about having the operation because she fears they will compromise her ability to wear heels and ruin her stylish look,’ says her friend. ‘She puts up with the pain, but the doctor has told her she seriously needs to consider a bunionectomy or ditch the heels for a few months to let the inflammation calm down. She has not got that long to decide what to do.’ Mrs Beckham is believed to wear corrective insoles in some shoes.

UGH … you just know shoes as tall as the ones that VB likes to wear do not come without a price. The bunions on her feet in this photo look … really painful. But, if she is happy to endure the pain just so she can wear these shoes then who are we to say anything. I, personally, would never injure myself just for fashion … there are far too many comfortable things to wear instead. But you just know that VB will not stop wearing these shoes … not until her feet fall off … then she’ll just have some new feet made for her so she can keep wearing her shoes. OY … she so crazy.

Tiger Woods Gets Into An Argument, Accident, Sh*tstorm Of Drama

It just keeps growing and growing and growing

Yesterday the news quickly spread that pro golfer Tiger Woods was involved in a car accident near his home in Florida and immediately people went into a frenzy of worry over his injuries. But as the story’s smoke cleared, as it were, a better picture of what went down began to emerge and the accident took a back seat to the drama that is said to have unfolded before the accident took place. As succinctly as possible, here’s what went down … Tiger and his wife Elin Nordegren got into an argument over allegations that he had been cheating with a woman named Rachel Uchitel:

Apparently, the argument escalated and Elin scratched up Tiger‘s face and chased him from their home with one of his golf clubs. As Elin beat his car with one of his clubs as he was trying to drive away, Tiger first crashed into a fire hydrant and then into a nearby tree. Elin then smashed out the car’s windows with the club and dragged Tiger from the car (because he was unconscious from the impact) before paramedics arrived on the scene and took him away to the hospital. Lawd. Drama. Since all of that craziness took place, new details from Tiger‘s alleged affair with Rachel have come to light:

In the wake of reports that Tiger Woods was involved in a single car accident on Friday, November 27, more details have been exposed on the avid golfer’s alleged affair with Rachel Uchitel. Star Magazine claims to have been informed by Uchitel’s friend Ashley Sampson that Uchitel first met Woods when she was still working as an event planner and the director of VIP Operations for the Big Apple hotspot Griffin. It was Woods who initiated the affair by offering to show Uchitel a “good golf grip,” Sampson reveals further. She goes on stating, “In June, she told me, ‘Tiger Woods is blowing up my phone messages!’ Tiger thinks Rachel is staying quiet about their affair, but she told everyone. She told me, ‘I’m having an affair with Tiger Woods. We’re in love!’ ” Besides, “I’ve heard him while she was talking to him on the phone and I recognized the voice,” adds Sampson. “I said, ‘Rachel, he’s married,’ and she said Big (bleeping) deal! It’s Tiger Woods. I don’t care about his wife! we’re in love!’ ” Uchitel herself is reported to have been overheard telling friends that she and Woods exchanged sex text messages. Speaking of the matter, Sampson tells Star Magazine, “He’d ask Rachel things like, ‘What are you wearing? What do you want to do to me? What do you want me to do to you?’ She even read me text messages that Tiger sent her that said, ‘I miss you so much! I love you’.” Greater than that, Rachel is said to have been telling her friends that Woods has promised to divorce his wife Elin Nordegren to be with her. Another source tells the publication, “I know for a fact that Tiger and Rachel got together for four days in Los Angeles. She talks about their affair all the time. She thinks Tiger is going to leave his wife and marry her.” Though reports of the affair have been mounting, comment is yet to be made by either Tiger Woods or Elin Nordegren. The athlete and the former supermodel have been married since October 2004 and are parents to two children; son Charlie Axel Woods and daughter Sam Alexis Woods.

Could this simple story of a car accident get any more complicated? After the jump, check out the scene of the accident and see the police report that was filed after Tiger‘s accident yesterday morning … More »
